“Great schnitzel - bigger than your face! ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

Must make reservations if you go! Very lively college bar with amazing beer and schnitzel to die for. Definitely have to share - each schnitzel is bigger than your face!

I ordered the Royale which is stuffed with Camembert - drool!!

“a must if you like schnitzels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

Great place. Very informal, friendly and authentic, incredible schnitzels.
Very busy, too busy to answer the phone, but we went there and after a few minutes had a seat and were quickly served. Highly recommended.

“The best schnitzel experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

We chose to eat the veal schnitzel and it was the best schnitzel experience I had so far. The meat is huge! We couldn't finish it, so it might be a good idea to share one for two people. What is different about this schnitzel is the variety of the sauces. I tried the mushroom sauce and was quite satisfied with it. Chilli is not that chilli! So one might go for it even if one is not getting well with hot dishes.
The restaurant starts giving sevice around 4 pm. We went there at 5 pm. Almost all the tables were booked for 7 pm. So had a quick early dinner.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“5/5 for what it is”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

Oma Kleinmann is not a fancy place to eat. But for Schnitzel a good place to get one. Service was fast and friendly. The location was not to take your girlfriend to the first, second or third date. Side dishes were good. But here the Schnitzel are what matter.

I like, how they offer both pork and veal Schnitzel. I had the one with capers and anchovies and it was big and good. The menu said, it was going to be served with home fries, sadly they just used irregular french fries...

“Great local experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

Went here with a family of 3 adults. Even though we went on a wednesday the place was crowded. There was only 1 table left, which was a table you'd normally use to have a drink, they also gave us the option to wait for a normal table, but as we didn't mind the other table we took the last available seats.
Don't expect luxury, the place is quite dated and really crowded with people eating at the tables, and drinking beers at the bar. Also, beer is priced really great at only €1,50.
All of us ordered schnitzel, 1 wiener and 2 times the royal version (which is filled with camembert), furthermore we chose french fries. The portions were huge, the schnitzels were even bigger than the huge plates they were served on. Furthermore, they tasted awesome!
Great restaurant, would definitely visit this restaurant again when in Köln.
